Richmond VA Garage Door Spring Repair Services – AOD Richmond

Richmond VA Garage Door Spring Repair Services | Amelia Overhead Doors | Virginia's Garage Door Super Center | (804) 561-5979Your garage doors have many moving parts to help it function properly and efficiently. After continuous daily usage, you will eventually need maintenance and repairs services. Being able to recognize the signs of wear on your garage door is important to prolonging the life of your door. Depending on what type you have, replacing these components yourself could be very dangerous.  In any event, you should call a Richmond VA Garage Door Spring Repair Services expert.

Amelia Overhead Doors is Central Virginia’s premier Richmond garage door repair and spring repair services provider – assisting customers with quality garage doors and garage door openers for decades. Since 1984, customers from Richmond, Lynchburg, Williamsburg and Charlottesville have trusted Amelia Garage Doors for all of their residential and commercial garage door needs.

Types of Spring Systems
Standard Extension Springs
These are coiled springs installed above the door’s horizontal track.

Standard Torsion Springs
These include a shaft, spring and drum assembly installed directly above the door opening. The torsion spring distributes the garage door’s weight evenly, which is critical with a wide and/or extremely heavy door. Standard torsion springs should only be installed and removed by a trained garage door professional.

Addressing Garage Door Spring Needs
When it comes to troubleshooting garage door spring needs, Amelia Overhead Doors is here to help.  Here is a guide for how to recognize, and resolve, your garage door spring repair needs:

Extension Spring

Garage doors use extension springs (located on either side of the track, often used on lighter doors), and torsion springs (typically one or two along the wall above the door opening for heavier doors). Here are some things to consider when comparing the safety of garage door springing systems.

  1. AOD door extension springs come with a “safety containment” cable system that spans the entire length of the spring.This feature helps prevent the possibility of injury. If your garage doors have extension springs, be sure they utilize a safety containment cable.

    Safe-T Bracket
  2.  Torsion springs are mounted on a shaft that acts as a containment system for that specific type of spring system.

  3. Serious injury can occur when a homeowner attempts to do it themselves–to remove or adjust the bottom bracket that connects the lifting cables to the spring system. This bracket is under extreme tension. If it becomes loose, it can separate from the garage door’s overall structure and cause injuries or property damage. (As a safety measure, Clopay’s patented Safe-T-Bracket™ cannot be removed until after the spring tension has been released).
